Kermode & Mayo’s Take makes its debut this Friday, bringing Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo’s witterings back to our ears after a month (and a bit) away.

It’s been just over a month since Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo were last united in our eardrums. On Friday April 1st, they signed off from their BBC Radio Five Live show of 21 years, Kermode & Mayo’s Film Review (Wittertainment to its mates), and their many fans have been waiting eagerly for their return.

It was quickly announced what that would be: a new podcast called Kermode & Mayo’s Take, with a second called Kermode & Mayo’s Take Two. But still: there’s been a wait of over a month for that to start, in spite of it now being advertised on the side of buses.

Well, we’ve got the start date. The first show was recorded on Bank Holiday Monday, and it’s going to launch at the end of this week: Friday May 6th. Tom Hiddleston is the first guest on the show, and the episode will be available at the usual podcast places on Friday.

That said, the only way might be down! The pair’s sub-two minute teaser for their new show has topped the iTunes movie podcast charts since it was released, and hasn’t budged for weeks. In truth, don’t expect it to move for a while when actually episodes start arriving. Normal service is about to be resumed…
